Christmas 2016 and the Days to Come

It's Christmas Eve and we're all ready for the big day tomorrow. Tonight, we plan to chill out with Lin and friends and then attend a Christmas Eve candlelight service at the First Parish Church in Milton, Massachusetts. Tomorrow, Lin's son, Nick, and his partner, Val, and daughter, Daphne, will join us along with long-time family friends, Steve, Prentiss and Damon. Nine around the dining table will be cozy and fun. The 21 pound turkey with all the fixin's should be just about right!

We remember Christmases past when we were away from family or sometimes away from each other. This year we're together with family and even Cups is back home in the USA.

We plan to leave Boston mid-week and head back to Nine of Cups patiently awaiting our return in Chesapeake, Virginia. No blog posting for the next week to give us a chance to celebrate, pack and make the drive south … plus we'll give Gentry, the blog mistress, a well-deserved break, too.

If you haven't seen our Holiday Newsletter you can view it here.

Have a wonderful holiday season and join us again aboard Nine of Cups at the New Year.

Merry Christmas to All


Merry Christmas! What more can I say on my favorite holiday of the year? David and I are not together geographically (sigh!), but we're together in spirit. I'm spending Christmas morning with my sister and her family … and Jelly, of course. We're drinking mimosas and eating decadently large, gooey cinnamon buns and opening our stockings. We'll head over to spend Christmas afternoon and evening with our mom, Bea.




David is … shall I really tell you? … working on the boat. What a surprise! We'll celebrate our Christmas together when I return to Nine of Cups … 12 days and counting.

On the first Day of Christmas my true love sent to me … Christmas morning greetings on Skype.

We wish you everyone ... health, wealth and love in 2014 and the time to enjoy them all.
